The Golden Endless Dominion of Nullity is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chi with an iron fist, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, complete lack of prisons, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.868 billion Nullities enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Industry, although Administration is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silence. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Null economy, worth 459 trillion Gold Lights a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 160,209 Gold Lights, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,450,130 per year while the poor average 2,101, a ratio of 690 to 1.

Hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, the only record being broken at sporting events is the highest death toll, and internet service is too costly for normal people to purchase. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Nullity's national animal is the Star Leprechaun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Nevermore.

Nullity is ranked 238,311th in the world and 6,145th in the Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -18.71 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
